It won't replace Graphictruth - but it will become a place I use regularly to speak of things that don't fit my flagship site. I'll continue to use their classifieds as well. Why? It's automated. It's administration is simpler than any solution I've found - and I can use ONE classified solution for any of my sites. I'm going to continue using their photo manager as well. Why? Because it allows me to remote-load; even gives me a url to copy and paste. It makes adding a photo to ANY blog painless and effortless. Ifrepparttar 131740 photo is already uploaded, I don't even have to be at my home computer!
